Hi lovelies! If you are reading this I just want to say thank you, I know my little “beauty closet” has been in need of a little TLC for a while now! It hasn’t even been about not having the time to post, but rather the contemplation of WHAT to post… I’ts been a whirlwind of a month for us, and I decided I wanted to take blogging to a different level. I may have started this little blog as mostly a fashion/beauty blog, but that was back as a childless newly wed who had endless time to play dress up! I’ve always loved fashion and enjoy creating looks and planning outfits, sometimes more for my daughter than for myself at this point if I am being honest…
But, I really am a terrible “fashion” blogger… Here’s why, I keep clothes for a long time and I don’t go shopping near enough to share all the latest styles and best deals + I often times find my favorites pieces from clearance racks and hole in the wall boutiques, and it’s near impossible to share the links and prices for stuff like that! But you know what? I am still gonna share outfit posts once in a while… because I enjoy it. I hope you ladies don’t mind, and I hope you still follow along anyways. I’ve been feeling a shift in my life (and therefore my blog) for a while now, but it’s been hard to fully express. I want to share and blog more what’s on my heart and less what’s on my body. If that makes sense. I will never out do the fashion bloggers with a million followers or frequent the mall enough to do X3 weekly posts on my latest finds… and I’ve come to realize that is completely and utterly okay. My life doesn’t look like many of the bloggers I have followed throughout the years, and instead of trying conform to the idealistic mama/fashion blogger/interior designer etc. I am just going to be me. As cliche as that phrase sounds… that is the simplest way to put it.
But I still have a desire to take photos, share thoughts, and inspire other young mamas of similar values. I want to learn how to actually utilize the settings on my camera, to learn new recipes weekly, to focus on being an amazing Mommy & Wife…and I just want to feel like that is enough. Like I am enough. Whether I just bought a designer dress or am lounging in my old pajama pants, I don’t want to feel the pressure of fitting into an IG stereotype or having to reach a certain numbers of “likes” or “followers”.
So here it is. My Beauty Closet. Full of the things I find beautiful. Sometime we need a beautiful scripture, a lovely thought, or a fragrant bouquet of flowers more than we need a new outfit, cute shoes, or more things to stuff into our cabinets and drawers. I want this little blog to convey my thoughts in a way that inspire and encourages you all. My hope is that I can share MORE of what I find beautiful, and less of what our feeds are already bombarded with.
This post probably needs to be edited a lot more but I need to power clean before heading to bed 😉
Thank you SO much for stopping by and reading my ramblings.
P.S. I didn’t necessarily have photos that really went with this post… but Scarlet in a leotard and rain boots is too cute to not share!
